Forget the whole New Year, new you attitude; instead, Brittany Elise has started the year in typical fashion, with a new single named Find Your Music that is sure to emulate her previous successes. It comes off the back of ‘Something More,’ her most recent album, which reached #2 on the iTunes Country Albums chart and #20 across all genres.
The track, she says, ‘was written to be a feel-good reminder that although we sometimes get caught up in life’s stressors, life is too short to worry. We have to remember not to put too much pressure on ourselves, just do what we want, and be who we want to be, even if it’s outside what people expect from you.’
Find Your Music was recorded in Brittany’s studio in Queensland and produced at The SongStore Victoria with Adrian Hannan, who has worked with Delta Goodrem, Vanessa Amorosi, TAXIRIDE and more. ‘The recording process was one of my favourite parts of this song,’ says Brittany, ‘because I decided to take an online course in music production after COVID-19 shut down the world. I set up my own studio at home to ensure I could keep writing, recording and releasing music, then I teamed up with Adrian to create a fun, feel-good sound.’
Fun, feel-good sound is the perfect way to describe Find Your Music, which was simply made to echo around the summer airwaves. And despite the track’s title, it would seem that Brittany Elise never had an issue finding her music, given recent successes. Her single A Simple Plan (released 2020) reached #1 on the iTunes Country Singles chart, while Another Day peaked at #3 and has had 22.3k Spotify streams since its release in 2019. Brittany was also an ABC Australian Music Month featured artist and a finalist for the Patti McKinnon ‘Up and Coming Artist’ Award at the 2020 ICMA Australian Awards.
Combine this success with a love of sport – as coach, she was a bronze medalist at the 2020 Hockey State Championships – and charity – she wrote a song for the R U Ok Campaign and played several bushfire relief concerts in early 2020 – and you’ve got a formidable talent who has proven that she’s ready to put in the hard work needed to truly establish oneself in the industry. She can’t wait to get back to playing live music and has several dates already planned, so if you’re ready to Find Your Music, well, here’s your opportunity:
